Since the summer of 1971, I have attended camp at the Wilds located near Brevard, NC (The Wilds Camp and Conference Center). God has used this ministry to greatly impact my life for all these years as well as my family and church. So, needless to say, I am excited for our juniors and teens to be going next week, July 21-24!!
The Wilds camp verse, Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31), is quoted at every meal and fleshed-out in every facet of camp life. The camp’s mission statement is so intertwined through their programs and staff: Using the unique benefits of Christian camping, we serve people by presenting the Truth of God with the love of God so lives can be changed to the glory of God.
This coming Sunday, we will be receiving a special love offering to be a blessing to our campers who attend. We believe so strongly in the ministry opportunity of summer camping that we want to do whatever we can to help our young people not just turn our good but to be godly.
The following link (Teen Camp Video) will give you a 7-minute glimpse into last week’s Teen Camp. Watch it, pray for the kids who are going next week along with sponsors, Andrew and Alli Isbell. Adults, after watching the video, you need to plan on attending an adult camp in the near future. You will come away changed because you have gotten away from all the distractions and have been presented the Truth of God with the love of God so your life can be changed for the glory of God.
